REPORT: Trump Aides “At Wits End” Over Buffalo Tweet

Jonathan Swan reports at Axios:

My phone blew up yesterday with texts from White House aides, current and former, who seemed at their wits’ end over President Trump’s tweet that the 75-year-old Buffalo protester who was rushed to the hospital after being shoved by police last week “could be an ANTIFA provocateur.”

Why it matters: They rarely register the president’s tweets anymore — let alone complain about them. This one felt different. One former aide remarked that it’s tweets like this that make him wonder whether Trump actually wants to get re-elected.
